education

Environmental education plays a crucial role in raising awareness and giving individuals the tools to be good stewards of their neighborhoods and communities. Our programs empower youth and adults to address, prevent, and solve environmental problems, be it through land & water quality protection programs, participation in water quality monitoring, creating pollinator-friendly habitats in their backyard, or adding environmentally ethical and sustainable practices to their daily lives.

Eyes on the Eno Educational Programs

We’re adapting to provide you STEM and conservation information that you can access from your home or when you’re out on the trail.

Eno River Herpetology Safari – This 20 minute video safari takes you through our favorite places along the Eno River to find snakes, frogs, toads, lizards, salamanders, and tadpoles. Eno River Association Education Coordinator Dave Cook – a certified Environmental Education instructor and former Park Ranger is your guide for this slimy and scaly adventure!

Fantastic Fish of the Eno – Join us for a quick video journey of discovery up the Eno River highlighting some of the incredible life below the surface. Over 60 types of fish live in the waters of the Eno. This is because the Eno River remains a free-flowing stream — one of the cleanest rivers in North Carolina.

Eno River Coloring Pages – Learn about the creatures that live in and along the banks of the Eno River while you unleash your artistic side. Downloadable, print-at-home coloring pages are available on our website — more added weekly. You can also buy the complete Eno River Coloring Book in our online store.

Citizen Science on the Eno – Get outside and do some science on your smartphone!

Coming soon! More educational videos, Eno River Scavenger Hunt, UpstreamMatters Bingo… stay tuned.
